Happy Thanksgiving!

Happy Thanksgiving Sushi Dinner Friends Family Sake Good Times Food

We will be closed for Thanksgiving Day. We will be enjoying the day with our family and loved ones. We hope you all do the same. We are grateful for our entire community, our customers, and our team members. We love doing what we do and hope to have many more meals with you in the future. Let us know if you would like to have a gathering at our place. We'd love to have you.

Party Platter

Orange County Sushi Party Platter Tuna Tekka Maki Yellowtail Albacore Peppered Salmon

If you have a gathering and need something to wow everyone, try one of our custom party platters! We can make it consist of your favorites or you can leave it up to our awesomely talented chefs to pick and choose what they think would be best for your gathering. The one pictured features bluefin tuna, yellowtail, peppered salmon, albacore, salmon, tekka maki (tuna rolls), and cucumber rolls. It's quite a variety but you can also add a few of our sushi rolls, too. Oh, and you don't have to have a gathering in order to get one of our platters.

Sushi Burrito

Sushi Burrito Snow Crab Mix No Rice Tuna Salmon Albacore Masago Red Onions

Our sushi chefs are always coming up with new items so it's imperative that you always check our specials board for what they might create this week. Our Sushi Burrito is our latest attempt to try something new. It features an assortment of fish (tuna, salmon, albacore), avocado, masago, red onions, and snow crab mix all wrapped up in a soy paper. Yep. No rice is involved and it's quite tasty and easy to eat. Just pick it up and put it in your mouth. You can dip it if you'd like but trust us when we say there's enough flavor in this burrito that you don't need to dip it.

Ika - Squid

Ika Squid Sushi Unique Different Crunchy Orange County Sushi World OC Education

Not all sushi is fish as is evident by this post about Ika, Squid. It definitely has a different texture as compared to traditional fish sushi. It's crunchier and we sear ours ever so lightly on the top to give it a little bit more taste and texture when you bite into it. Plus, it makes it easier to see, as you can tell from the photograph because it is very white. As is with almost everything else on our menu, you can get it as a sushi or as sashimi. Tastes similar to Conch, if you have ever had that. Almost always in stock.

Sushi. Sake. Leave Dad Alone.

Sushi Sake Leave Dad Alone for Father's Day Perfect Quiet No Sports Orange County OC Sushi World

We can read all father's minds for Father's Day. All they want is sushi, sake, and for everyone to leave them alone. Yeah, that's pretty accurate. Fathers don't want to celebrate anything. They just want to eat, drink, and to be left alone. It's kinda funny that Father's Day lands on the calendar when there's not much sports going on. Yes, there's baseball but there's no football, basketball, or even hockey. It would be awesome if Father's Day was just a little earlier in the year.

Happy Memorial Day! Happy Hour All Day!

Happy Memorial Day Happy Hour All Day Sushi Sashimi Rolls Handrolls Sushi World Orange County OC

We honor and respect all of the women and men out there who have served and/or are serving in our military, especially those who have made the ultimate sacrifice to protect this great nation of ours. We truly salute you as you deserve more than just this day to honor you. Being that Memorial Day is on a Monday, we will have Happy Hour all day where you get to enjoy $3.99 sushi, $4.5 appetizers, $15 Sapporo pitchers, and quite a few other specially priced items. And in case you miss it on Monday, it's all day on Tuesday as well.

Happy Mother's Day!

Orange County Bluefin Tuna Sashimi Mother's Day Spoil Her Best Meal

It took us a while to figure out what to do for Mother's Day since it's so hard to please mom. So we cut up a fresh Bluefin Tuna right before the weekend so that Mom could enjoy all the fresh Bluefin Tuna and Toro that she wants. Bring her on by any day of the weekend and spoil her. It's what she wants. And if you're on a budget, just bring her by on Monday or Tuesday after when we have Happy Hour all day on both days. Moms love us regardless. She doesn't mind.

Fresh Beef Tataki

Beef Tataki Raw Beef Fresh Orange County OC Best Happy Hour Appetizer Sushi World Cypress

We make our own Beef Tataki fresh in house and you can taste the difference! We take fresh beef, slice them up, season them, and age them appropriately for the most perfect taste. So yes, we can do more than just sushi. Currently, it's our only "beef" dish so if that's what you're craving, go ahead and get it. It makes for a great appetizer to accompany all your sushi choices. It also balances it out and gives you a different flavor and taste as well. Oh, and it's still on our Happy Hour menu.

May the Fourth Be with You!

May the 4th piece of sushi be with you orange County sushi OC Sushi World

Happy May the 4th, everyone! Star Wars Day! Yes, we're Star Wars geeks! And what better way to spend such a geeky day than with us! And if so, we hope you have at least the 4th piece of sushi every time, if not more. Depends on what kind of sushi buddies you have. Maybe you shouldn't share food with them if they're going to hog it all up. Maybe you just need new friends. Maybe you should just eat sushi alone. That's what true nerds do. The force is strong in this one!

Tekka Maki Tuna Sushi Roll On Our Happy Hour Menu!

Tekka Maki Tuna Sushi Roll Orange County OC Best Happy Hour All Day Sushi World

A classic sushi roll that is simple and always a great way to start a meal session with us, Tekka Maki, otherwise known as a tuna sushi roll, is on our happy hour menu for only $4.50. Our happy hour, which is the best in Orange County, is all day on Mondays and Tuesdays and all other weekdays from 2pm till 5pm. Also on our happy hour menu is Negi Hama (Yellowtail sushi roll with green onions) for $4.50, sushi for $3.99, appetizers for $4.50, and Sapporo pitchers for only $15. You cannot find a better deal than that in all of Orange County.

Lent Approved Fish Fridays at Sushi World

Orange County Fish Fridays Lent Approved OC Sushi World Catholic Tuna Sashimi

For our Catholic friends, today is Ash Wednesday and therefore the start to Lent. We just wanted to remind everyone that we are heavily, heavily Lent-Approved by the Catholic Church ;-). Just about anything you can get from the sushi bar is lent approved. If you order items from the kitchen, might not be. like our chicken bento boxes. But that does mean that you can get any fish we have on display, like the pictured tuna sushi and sashimi. You can also get a smoked salmon collar or even Amaebi (sweet shrimp.) Yep, swing on by after mass. We'll take good care of you.

Live Sweet Shrimp - Amaebi

Amaebi Live Sweet Shrimp Specialty Specials Board Sushi Bar Chefs Orange County OC

Beautiful, translucent, sweet shrimp. Yum. Yep, they're in stock and alive for the taking. Absolutely one of our favorite items so we always eat them ourselves when they're in stock. Our chefs masterfully serve up the tails of the amaebi with a just a hint of wasabi and rice, if you'd like. They then deep fry the heads for you so you can just eat those like fries, except these are much better. If you do dip it in soy sauce, make sure you only dip it a bit. Doesn't need much because the shrimp itself is so darn tasty.

Cheers to the New Year!

Sushi Lineup

Sushi Lineup Jumbo Scallops Uni Bluefin Tuna Yellowtail Albacore Red Snapper Mackerel Orange County OC Sushi World

Did you know that you can come in and just get a lineup of sushi just like this? Take a seat at our sushi bar and interact with our sushi chefs The more they know about what you like, the more they'll be able to create a custom lineup with your preferences. Otherwise, you can just tell them how many pieces of sushi you'd like and they'll take care of the rest. It's another way we do "omakase." or Chef's Choice. Makes the decision process so much easier for everyone.

Don't Be the Only One Dressed Up!

Caterpillar Roll Jerks Costumes Halloween Tuna Red Snapper Tako Salmon Cypress OC Orange County Sushi World

Don't you hate it when you go out and everyone agrees to dress up and then it turns out you're the only one? Yeah, our Caterpillar Roll knows exactly how that feels, especially around a platter of tuna, salmon, tako, and red snapper nigiri. Come dressed up as a sushi roll and we'll give you a free sake! But please, if you do, take a picture while you're at Sushi World and post it publicly so that we can see it, too! We hope everyone has a fun and safe Halloween out there. If you don't get enough treats, come on in! We'll surely "treat" you right!

Anime Event for Halloween?

Orange County OC Japanese Anime Night Halloween Sushi Mask Event Costume Manga

Should we do an Anime Costume night for Halloween this year? Our chefs would love to dress up and have some fun with y'all. Come dressed up in your favorite anime outfit and we will reward you with something nice. Best costume of the night will win something even nicer. And if we get enough input, we can play an anime movie or show on the tvs. We will open it up to everyone's suggestions. Sushi, sake, and some anime fun sounds like a pretty awesome Halloween night.

Spicy Tuna Roll - Sushi World

Orange County Best Happy Hour Spicy Tuna Roll All Day Mondays Tuesdays Sushi World

Sushi World's Happy Hour features several rolls like the pictured Spicy Tuna Roll. Our Spicy Tuna Roll isn't too spicy but we really keep to the basics on this roll. It's just a spicy tuna center with cucumber, and then rolled in seaweed and rice with a sprinkle of sesame seeds. Happy Hour is all day on Mondays and Tuesdays and on Wednesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays from 2pm till 5pm. We have quite the assortment of items to choose from on our HH menu, including sushi, appetizers, rolls, hand rolls, and beer!

Spicy Scallop Hand Roll

Spicy Scallop Hand Roll Cone Seaweed Cucumber Soy Paper Orange County OC Sushi World

Our Spicy Scallop Hand Roll is simple yet bursting with flavors. We take a big serving of scallops, mix it with our special creamy sauce that includes masago, and then wrap it in seaweed with a slice of cucumber. Pictured here is an alternative you may have if you prefer soy paper over seaweed. We can make any hand roll with either seaweed or soy paper. Both ways are delicious so it's just a matter of preference. You also can get a whole spicy scallop cut roll, if that's what you prefer.

Jalapeno Yellowtail for the Win

Jalapeno Yellowtail Sesame Seeds Ponzu Orange County Sushi World OC

You can never go wrong when you order our Jalapeno Yellowtail. It's low in carbs, women love it, it's great on dates, and it's extremely tasty! It all starts with perfectly sliced sashimi pieces laid out on our plate. It's then dressed with a ponzu mixed sauce and a jalapeno sauce blend along the top that has a lot of flavor and is not too spicy. And then we sprinkle some toasted sesame seeds on top. Yep, it's pretty perfect.

Yamaha Roll: Named After Our Neighbor in Cypress

Yamaha Roll Cypress Tempura Spicy Tuna Roll Avocado Green Onions Garlic Ponzu Orange County OC Sushi World

At Sushi World, we do have non-traditional sushi rolls, like our Yamaha Roll! It features a tempura spicy tuna roll with avocado and then it's topped with green onions and garlic ponzu. It is definitely not your traditional sushi roll as this is mostly a fried sushi roll. Did you know that the Yamaha corporate campus is located just a couple of blocks away from us here in Cypress? Wonder if anyone over there knows that we have a sushi roll here named after them! If anyone over at the Yamaha campus sees this, holler at us!

Mackerel: Saba

Mackerel Saba Cypress Healthy Shiny Skin Healthy Omega Sushi World Orange County OC

While it's not always on our Specials Board, you should try to order it whenever you do see Mackerel on there. Also known as Saba, Mackerel is very distinctive in its appearance thanks to its shiny skin. It's not for everyone, as there might be a fishy aftertaste that many sushi novices aren't used to. But if you have had it and have enjoyed it, you will also reap the benefits of it being a very healthy fish to eat as it is very high in fish oils, like Omega 3, which is why it is so shiny in the first place.

Sushi World's Salmon Skin Salad

Salmon Skin Salad OC Orange County Best Happy Hour Cypress Sushi World

Sushi World's Salmon Skin Salad is a nice-sized serving that is fresh and light and features quickly grilled salmon skin with a lot of guilt-free greens. It also has avocados and bonito flakes. It's a great item to get to accompany all that sushi you'll be eating.

Agedashi Tofu

Agedashi Tofu Dashi Lightly Battered Fried Green Onions Orange County Sushi World OC

We have quite an extensive menu and an item that has been humbly on there forever is our Agedashi Tofu. It's a very simple Japanese dish consisting of lightly battered and fried tofu cubes in a dashi sauce. A little green onion on top and that's about it. Very simple yet tasty. It's a great appetizer to get in between all that sushi you're eating while at Sushi World. Next time you swing by, be sure to look at our whole menu to see if there might be something else you enjoy. If not, always stick to your favorites. And also always check our Specials Board.

Happy 4th of July!

Sushi Roll Bentley Light It Up Independence Day Happy 4th of July Sushi World Orange County OC Cypress

We hope everyone has a fun-filled and safe 4th of July holiday! Instead of lighting up sushi rolls like our Bentley Roll on our Independence Day, our sushi chefs will have the day off to light up some fireworks! So we are closed for the 4th of July! Our employees could also use the break! But, we are open the following day. And you're not going to go to work the day after the 4th of July anyway. If you're driving anywhere, please drive carefully. And also remember to be safe with your fireworks out there.

Japanese Jumbo Scallops, Ankimo, Amaebi

Japanese Jumbo Scallops Monkfish Liver Ankimo Amaebi Live Sweet Shrimp Oysters Orange County OC

Every time you come to visit Sushi World, you can have something different. And we encourage you to try something different every time. Some items to consider adding to your sushi repertoire are our Japanese Jumbo Scallops, in-house made Ankimo (Monkfish Liver), fresh Amaebi (Live Sweet Shrimp) with deep fried heads, and our freshly shucked Oysters on a half shell. All are fantastic on their own but we highly recommend you try them all out eventually.

Raw Oysters on a Half Shell

Fresh Raw Oysters Half Shell Ponzu Masago Green Onions Orange County Cypress Garden Grove

Some Oysters on a Half Shell with some ponzu, masago, and green onions are never a bad idea. They might help with whatever romantic action you're trying to achieve tonight ;-). We shuck fresh oysters every time and put our favorite toppings on them. Get some and hopefully, you'll get some.
